Magnets - a makeover
I have mentioned before that my studio is an enclosed Verandah off the main living area of our house. It was a DIY project from the previous owners and they kept their birds in there hence there are some odd little things in place that were 'bird proofing' measures. One such thing is a metal strip that runs floor to ceiling covering some brick work beside my table and I use these magnetic clips to hold all manner of pretty, creative, sentimental and inspiring things up there for me to see.
These clips come in a pack of 6 from GoLo in Australia and are about $3.00. I never seem to have enough so went and bought some more last week, and I decided to pretty them up.
I cut circles from lots of lovely Lily Bee design papers, there are from the 'Happily lost' and 'This and That' ranges. I had some jac paper which is sticky on both sides and additionally cut some circles from that and adhered all the papers to the circular indent on the clips.
These magnets are strong and have some weight in them I love that I can use them to display my charm squares for easy access and pretty inspiration.
I am even using them now to clip fabric selections by project on the wall so I can grab something that I feel like cutting or sewing ready to go with out much thought in the moment.
Tiny pockets of colour and pattern make my heart happy so even if the wall is not full of sewing projects on the go, there are still little pretties in sight that bring me a smile.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my work space I aim to share a little more of it here this year.
